This past week, New York Fashion Week showgoers selected eclectic and vibrant choices for footwear. Nike's running-turned-lifestyle Zoom Vomero 5 made a return to the spotlight as it surfaces as the comfortable go-to shoe from last decade. Another throwback to 2019 saw another Nike fan wear its golf-inspired "Grass" edition Air Max 1s. Continuing on its hot streak, Nike continues to be a staple at fashion week with its Dunks and AF1 silhouettes.
Those continuing to place comfort above all else have gravitated towards New Balance silhouettes like the 1906R or even Asics. Birkenstock Boston mules were a chosen slip-on alternative as well as Salomons. Besides NYFW, this past week also marked Rihanna's big return to the stage at the Super Bowl. New Yorkers were right on trend, quickly taking to the streets to sport the same pair of Salomons worn by RiRi on stage. Those interested can check out HBX to purchase the red MM6 Maison Margiela X Salomon Cross Low. Another pair of red shoes took the spotlight this week with the release of MSCHF's Big Red Boots. Those lucky enough to get their hands on the shoe, sported the pair during fashion week, a sure statement piece that points towards exaggerated and dramatic silhouettes as the next trend of the season. Other shoes spotted this week include Rick Owens Scarpe High Top sneakers as well as Matthew M Williams, Givenchy TK-MX mesh sneakers.
